Thrilling footage of the F12berlinettas at the Nürburgring
Maranello, 21 July – The Green Hell tamed by 40 F12berlinettas – that statement sums up in nutshell the day enjoyed by a fleet of Ferrari V12 clients at the Nürburgring’s old Nordschleife loop. The infamous 22-kilometre-plus circuit provided the venue for the German Grand Prix until 1976 and continues to host a wide variety of other motorsport competitions today. Ably assisted by Ferrari’s Chief Development Test-Driver Raffaele De Simone, the clients pushed the potential of their F12berlinettas to the utmost. Tackling one of the great temples of motor-racing and the scene of so many Prancing Horse victories proved a hugely exhilarating experience for all as attested by this footage of the day’s highlights.
